Starving Artist6:58 PM
So this week's episode of Project Runway was called Starving Artist. The remaining contestants were split into groups and then asked to fund raise for money in order to put together their looks for the runway. I'm always intrigued by group challenges because it's a guessing game as to how the contestants will get along and what kind of glorious (Chris and Christian, anyone?) or grotesque (I could list so many!) things they will come up with. I hate the way everyone gets all snarky about it too. I mean, in the real world of fashion do you honestly think that you'll never have to collaborate with anyone? You can't all start out Karl Lagerfeld. I digress. I was fairly underwhelmed again this week by the fashion they came up with. This ended up being the winning look and if you ask me, it's pretty boring. I do like that the jacket has a bit of flair in the folds but as far as being innovative it falls disturbingly short of the mark. In either event it WAS arguably the most interesting piece that walked the runway and that's why I chose to base my art on it.
I used a combination of China Glaze Foie Gras and Lime Crime Milky Ways for the base which is meant to emulate the two tone skirt. Then I used China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald for the french to capture the jacket on top. They kind of remind me of football season. The brown ball and the green grassy field? No? Alicia went home this week and I felt like while it wasn't warranted this challenge per say, it was about time she went home at any rate. Did you like the winning look this week best? Do you think Alicia should have stayed?
